An amateur dramatic society meet, as usual, for their weekly rehearsal, but there is nothing usual about this particular evening.

Why is the normally punctual Doris late? Why has a member of the company taken an instant dislike to the new caretaker? What is revealed when one of the cast decides to play at being Hercule Poirot?

Find out the answers to these questions and more when Murder in Company is performed by The Wanstead Players at the Kenneth More Theatre in Ilford.

“We know our audiences love a good murder mystery and over the years we have performed quite a few,“ says Pamela May, in her fourth outing as director for the group.

“We always try to find plays that will leave them guessing until the very last moment.

“Obviously Agatha Christie is the most well-known author of this particular genre, but I’m sure that this play by Philip King, writer of See How They Run, and John Boland, author of The League of Gentlemen, will prove every bit as enjoyable and mysterious as anything we have produce before. “ The Wanstead Players will perform Murder in Company at the Kenneth More Theatre, Oakfield Road, Ilford, from Thursday, February 7 until Saturday, February 9.
